Most often, for most people, it feels like there is no choice – circumstances and others determine the course of a day …
More important I think, is to question if we define our day, or whether our day defines us?
If someone touches you, don’t you have a vastly different day than if you are completely alone?
Worst time to be single/alone is the ‘holiday’ long weekend – with great weather no less, when you don’t have a potential partner even remotely in your orbit. Nobody to ‘hang with’, walk with, talk with, go for a drive with or get a bite with or do an errand with. Nobody to look for, nobody to cook for or to make time for.
Most days are ‘between days’, between extremes, between partners and between opportunities – between best and worst …
I want more of those best days, fewer worst days.
Sure, text or talk are valuable forms of communication, but sometimes it isn’t communication we need as much as we need the touch of someone (friend, lover, parent, child, grandchild, caregiver) we care about, someone who cares about us. Without it, what value does anything else in life really hold?
